On October 6th, 2012 @ 7:00pm in Castleberry Hill, Atlanta, GA, Stefani Byrd and Wes Eastin will present their one night installation entitled, TROLL. TROLL an interactive installation meant to mimic the incendiary remarks put forth by internet pranksters, marks Byrd + Eastin’s fifth consecutive year of creating interactive temporary public art installations. Byrd and Eastin’s work is held in the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA GA) and the Columbus Museum of Art.
A digital traffic message board will be remotely controlled by “hackers” directing messages at the passing audience in real time. Reading these snarky messages engages the FLUX viewers in this bad behavior, bringing light to the strange and prevalent concept of the “online disinhibition effect”.
FLUX NIGHT (formerly FLUX) is a one-night event modeled on other international celebrations such as Toronto’s Nuit Blanche. FLUX NIGHT fills the streets and empty spaces of the Castleberry Hill Arts District with large and small-scale projections, performances, dance, music, light and sound installations, and other forms of multimedia works and public interactions.
